BOSTON (CBS) — In the 2007 postseason on the Red Sox’ road to a World Series title, Josh Beckett and Curt Schilling combined to go 7-0 with a 2.00 ERA. Beckett won Game 1, Schilling won Game 2, and the Sox never looked back.

Five years later, Beckett has left his former teammate speechless.

Schilling was a guest on ESPN Boston Radio with Adam Jones on Friday, and he said that Beckett’s decision to golf when his team was keeping him off the field due to injury was just wrong.

“I guess I’m speechless after all of it, given every thing that has happened, given how last year ended, given all the things going on this year,” Schilling, who hasn’t been shy when it comes to talking about the Red Sox, said, according to CSNNE.com.

Schilling said that when he played in Arizona, he golfed often, but never when he was injured.

“It was a way for me to keep myself healthy,” Schilling said. “It was the best thing I could possibly do the day after I pitched to keep my body loose and my arms and my back stretched. But with a physical ailment you never step on the course. … You get paid a lot of money to throw a baseball and win baseball games, and that always has to be the focus.”
